Taiwan weather & when to go: December

December overview

December is a great time of year to visit Taiwan. It may seem strange to suggest a holiday in the coldest month in any country’s calendar, but in subtropical Taiwan temperatures never really plummet too low.

December's weather in detail

Although the north east coast is stormy and cloudy in December due to the effects of the monsoon, the rest of the island is enjoying favourable weather conditions, making December a good time of year to visit Taiwan. In the tropical south it’s still very much beach weather, especially in the furthest reaches such as Kenting.

If you’re looking for a Christmas getaway, Taiwan is an excellent choice. Early booking is essential.

Our Compact Taiwan holiday incorporates the essential highlights, offering a tantalising teaser of what the island has to offer. Travel from Taipei’s modern metropolis, along dramatic coastal cliffs into the world’s deepest marble gorge at Taroko National Park, descending through tea plantations to the glimmering Sun Moon Lake.
